Kaley Cuoco may have officially dropped the Sweeting from her last name, but the girl still sounds sweet on love. Fresh off of her divorce, Cuoco stopped by CBS This Morning, where she opened up on life after splitting with husband, Ryan Sweeting, and spilled the deets on her new love!

Last Friday, the divorce between the Big Bang Theory actress and the tennis pro became finalized, with a prenuptial agreement the couple had previously signed spelling out the logistics of the split. And while we're still mourning the seemingly-perfect twosome — who tied the knot on New Year's Eve of 2013 with the bride donning a custom petal-hued Vera Wang wedding dress — it sounds like Cuoco has happily moved on and has her sights set on a new definition of happily ever after as unique as that pretty-in-pink bridal gown.

"You know what, I'm not ashamed of anything that happened," the actress said of her divorce on the talkshow. "I fall in love really hard. I go deep and that person is it for me. I love hard, and when it's over, it's over."

"Some people make mistakes," she shared. "And I wouldn't call it a mistake. It's just what happened in my life, and now I'm excited to see what the future holds. But it happened, and now I have to say I'm happier than I've ever been." But she's not only happy, she's in love!

Cuoco has recently been linked to 25-year-old professional equestrian Karl Cook, according to Entertainment Tonight, whom she bonded with over their mutual love of horses."Even when I was going through it, I was like, 'Oh, I'm never gonna love again,' I can't even pretend to say that because it's not me. It's not my heart," Cuoco explained. "I think that the horse connection is special," she said of her new beau. "He's special."
